A sleeping giant of the electronic music world, Douglas Appling more commonly known as Emancipator has quietly established himself as a mainstay in the electronic music scene since the release of his debut album, Soon It Will Be Cold Enough in 2006. Classically-trained as a violinist from an early age, Applings organic approach to electronic music production draws inspiration from a wide range of international cultures and musical genres, culminating in a refreshingly authentic brand of electronic music that has infiltrated global consciousness. 2015 was a busy year having released Live In Athens in June, and Dusk to Dawn Remixes a remix album featuring massively-popular contributions from the likes of ODESZA, Little People, Eliot Lipp, and more in July, 2015 and now his first full length album in three years, Seven Seas. Seven Seas is the product of over two years of work, collaborations, experiences, and live performances all culminating in a cohesive collection of songs that solidifies that Emancipator is only getting better with age.

The Monocle welcomes Prisca Jebet Kendager as she debuts her new play Seven and Ten on February 23 & 24 at 8pm on the Emerald Room Stage. Prisca is a playwright, actress, and teacher in Kansas City, Missouri, and is thrilled to bring her work to Saint Louis! Below is a short synopsis of "Seven and Ten".When Sarah was 14 she had a dream that God told her she and Ryan were supposed to be married. Being a God fearing man (at least as much of a man as you can be at age 14) Ryan agreed and they began courting. At 18 they were married. Once in seminary their friend Henry met Jenny. Henry liked Jenny a lot, and she felt the same. After a lot of prayer and counseling from Ryan and Sarah (the now well versed and most experienced married couple they knew) Henry and Jenny got married right after college. Ryan becomes a youth pastor, Henry becomes a worship pastor, and Jenny becomes a missions pastor. All at the same church. Life is simple and perfect...according to Sarah. After years of making choices at such a young age, Ryan and Jenny begin questioning everything, including whether or not they married the right people. Things become
complicated. Feeling her husband drift away, but not sure why Sara tries desperately to keep things in control. Praying more, and pretending everything is fine.Things begin to fall apart below the surface, but above everything thrives. So its ok right? Thats part of being involved in ministries. Your life falls apart, but as long as you change the world, its all fine. As the veils become more and more torn and tattered, and true selves come to the surface, even Sara herself is revealed to have her own shameful secrets and hatreds. Especially for Jenny.Tickets are $10 in advance. S15 at the door.
